Interactive Earth is an interactive tool for tablet that allows you to explore geography, climates and geodynamics. This project would not have been possible without the expertise of IPGP (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
Interactive Earth is a great educational app that is fun to play and explore. It allows you to superimpose composite images which show clouds, land and sea temperatures, or the global distribution of vegetation, snow and ice over the year.
Additional layers let you and your students explore oceanic currents, climates, plate tectonics, volcanoes, earthquakes, faults.
⁃Manipulate a 3D exaggerated terrain model of the Earth and control the water level and coloring of land and sea.
⁃Use simple gestures to control zoom, pan, rotation and tilt of your Earth view.
⁃Create stunning images from any angle and zoom.
⁃Tour over 300 different elevation relevant locations, from highest and lowest points to islands, cities and shipwrecks.
⁃Display labels for countries, U.S. states, and Canadian provinces.
⁃Use the exaggeration slider to increase or decrease the difference between the high and low points on the Earth. This exaggeration helps to emphasize the true beauty and extremes of the terrain on a planetary scale. Ability to view elevations inverted with a negative elevation scale.
⁃Select to use fixed or variable (dependent on zoom) exaggeration for a smoother viewing experience.
⁃See for yourself, how the oceans are deeper than the highest mountains are tall.
⁃Use the info window to display the amount of water area and volume on the Earth and watch it change dynamically as you alter the sea level.
⁃Adjust the sea level and amount of water on the Earth, watching it flood or drain areas of the terrain based on its elevation.
⁃North and South Pole axis lines help to keep better track of your orientation.
⁃Choose from a variety of color schemes to provide impressive renderings of any part of the surface of the Earth.
⁃Use the color slider to pick from a huge range of colors for each scheme.
⁃Share your high resolution imagery with friends via email, messaging, Facebook etc.
⁃Discover the highest mountains from the center of the earth as well as those above sea level.
⁃See cities for each continent from the highest to the lowest above sea level
⁃Show how the Earth would look with just the water from the individual oceans. Select individual oceans and distribute their water across the globe and see the theoretical new sea level.
⁃Direct link to Wikipedia information about the current location.
⁃View a number of different global warming scenarios past, present and future, or simply create your own.
⁃Help documentation included in app.
This Earth science app contains illustrations, animations, and photos by Dennis Tasa as well as annotated photos by Michael Collier and Ed Tarbuck. Animations show how folds and faults change the position and angle of rock layers. Illustrations and annotated photographs help to illustrate these concepts and aid in the identification of folds and faults in the field.
Alfred Wegener proposed his theory of a slow drifting of the continents in his 1912 work “”The translation_paris of Continents” and his 1915 book “The Origins of Continents and Oceans”. He wasn’t the first to propose such a hypothesis, but he was the first to support it with a collection of observations derived from several disciplines – like climatology, geology and paleontology.
The theory of continental drift took some time to be accepted, mainly because Wegener had not succeeded in explaining the geological processes which caused the drift.
It was only in the 1950’s that new observations (mapping of the ocean floors by Maurice Ewing, the surfacing of magma at the oceanic ridges, paleomagnetism, convective movements in the mantle…) definitively validated Wegner’s hypotheses in the framework of a theory called “Plate Tectonics”.

In this green retelling of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol, Plastic Bottle Scrooge is visited by the ghosts Plastic Past, Plastic Present, and Plastic Future. This entertaining tale about environmental responsibility explores the concepts of reduce, reuse, recycle in a lively thought-provoking adventure for all ages. Join Scrooge for this Earth Day celebration and discover how all of us can help make the planet a clean and beautiful place.
App features include:
• Fun interactions
• Fascinating pop-up factoids
• Full color illustrations

“...when you are sincere and have an aspiration, you emanate a certain vibration, the vibration of your aspiration which goes and meets the corresponding force in the book, and it is a higher consciousness which gives you the answer.”
This app is an attempt to do similar thing, if you are looking for a random quote from Sri Aurobindo & The Mother. You can also share the quotes with your friends .
Users can view a campus map, check out the menus from our dining courts, read campus news or watch videos.
Visitors have the option to stream or download content. Streaming saves hard drive space and avoids a longer wait time while downloading the content allows you to enjoy the tour with or without WIFI or 3G connections.
Tour features include:
- An interactive, zoomable GPS map that shows your current location and points of interest in the area (must have connectivity for maps)
- Photos and text that share the history, culture and stories behind Purdue.
- Multiple tour media access points: find desired tour stops from the map or a full tour stop list.
- Location-based tour stop triggering: as you explore, a dynamic list of the tour stops nearest your location will continue to refresh.
- Tour stop images will help orient you to the surroundings and find points of interest more quickly
- Additional embedded information such as phone numbers, websites, social media, routing addresses and text information.

Citizen Science Research Participation
Record the Earth is an application for global ecological data collection. You are collecting information about the health and wellbeing of the planet through sound and helping researchers understand human's connection to soundscapes. What are sounds that you love, what are sounds that you hate. Which sounds could indicate a the arrival of a new season. Your mission is to go out and record the sounds around the earth, describe and tag them. Then sign up online to rate, share, sort, and explore the data being collected from around the world and save your favorites sounds to your own soundscape playlist.
The default recording format is AAC-3 min maximum. While AAC recordings on certain devices playback perfectly on our website, they failed to play on the device due to differences in manufacturer specifications for this reason there is a secondary WAV-1 min recording profile. Future updates will allow changing between profiles, currently Samsung devices will default to WAV-1min format.
